  • inner membrane protein
  • localized in the mitochondria
  • basic FUNCTION
  • may represent regulator of cell death pathways, which is concluded from structure conservation of BI1 family
  • involved in mitochondrial morphology in specific cristae structures and the apoptotic release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria
  • plays a role in maintaining mitochondrial morphology separately from the function in apoptotic pathways
  • facilitates the tight association of cytochrome c with the inner membrane
  • individually functions in mitochondrial morphology and cytochrome c release
  • play a role in apoptosis
  • reduce the CaČ&
  • 8314; content of the endoplasmic reticulum, and all but TMBIM5 also reduce the cytosolic resting CaČ&
    8314; concentration
